Master of Science in Nursing Student Testimonials
“Some of the most valuable experiences I had during the MSN program was learning from the wealth of knowledge of my peers. Because there were students from all over the country in such a wide variety of healthcare roles, every person contributed something new to our discussions.”
“The online format was perfect. I was able to work on projects, write discussion posts and papers at 1 am if I wanted to. The flexibility and autonomy were a perfect balance with my self-directed student style. Navigating the online platform was easy and the tech support was there 24/7 to help.
The MSN faculty were true servant educators. They engaged and empowered me and always put the students first. Their concern for my well-being and my growth was palpable even across the miles. They healed me emotionally whenever I struggled and believed in me when I lost faith in myself.”
“Saint Xavier University’s MSN program was extremely well organized. While I was in school I was working a full-time job and a part-time job and was also raising two toddlers. The coursework in the program was extremely relevant and helped me to meet course objectives without being overwhelming. The set deadlines throughout the program made it possible for me to remain organized and complete my coursework while also working and caring for my family.
The skills I have learned at SXU have been invaluable. I have become a better manager of care on a patient-specific level, I have become passionate for incorporating evidence-based practice and have been able to implement communication and collaboration skills that were learned when working with the interdisciplinary care team.”
“Shortly after graduation I moved into a Practice Manager position on my unit. The requirements of the job include staff education, patient care improvement projects, and support of policy and evidence based practice. I was entirely prepared for those responsibilities because of the MSN program.”
“I really found I could start applying so much of my education in a real-time setting as an established RN. Looking for evidence-based articles that were relevant was a boon. Learning about change processes and health-care legislation on a more profound level than what I learned with my BSN has been very exciting.”
